Shooting Star Jennifer Tilly Eliminated by David "Doc" Sands
Level 7: 250-500, 50 ante
After a flop of AK8, Shooting Star Jennifer Tilly is all in with AK (top two pair) against David Sands' A6 (pair of aces, flush draw). The turn card is the 6, giving Sands two pair and additional outs.
The river card is the 2, and Sands makes his diamond flush to win the pot and eliminate Shooting Star Jennifer Tilly. Sands receives the $5,000 cash bounty and an autographed "I Busted Jennifer Tilly" t-shirt. As a bonus, Sands got his photo taken with Tilly after busting her.
With Laak's elimination coming just a few minutes before Tilly's, she joins him while he was being interviewed by some TV cameras. Tilly says that they often bust within half an hour of each other during tournaments, thought Laak appears to call it a self-fulfilling prophecy. Tilly laughs and says that Laak often hides the fact that he has busted from an event so she doesn't get any incentive to lose all of her chips.
